This research focuses on the dynamical controls of
tropical-extratropical interactions in both observations, reanalyses,
and state-of-the-art weather and climate simulations. The PDRA will join
the Climate Science for Service Partnership (CSSP) between the UK and
Brazil supported by the Newton Fund and will collaborate with colleagues
in the Met Office and research partners in both countries.

Potential candidates should:
